Description Ambroz Bizjak 2012-09-12 18:15:36 UTC
In hp-toolbox->Settings->Tray icon, "Check and notify HPLIP updates" is not checked. However I've seen hplip checking for updates:

ps -Af
ambro     1534  1434  0 17:59 ?        00:00:00 /usr/bin/python2 /usr/bin/hp-upgrade --check
ambro     1561  1534  0 17:59 pts/0    00:00:00 /usr/bin/wget --cache=off --timeout=60 --output-document=/tmp/tmpcGjk0Q

     │         └─python2───python2

I've noticed this because was down and the wget command stayed alive for a long time.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use iptables to filter out traffix to, or wait until it goes down.
2. Start hp-systray or hp-toolbox
3. Check process list and find hp-uprade and wget running

I've just noticed that the "check updates" setting cannot be changed via hp-toolbox. In the tray icon pane of the settings dialog within hp-toolbox (!), changing it and clicking OK does not actually change it. It does however change when going via tray icon->Settings.

Checking for updates and installing them does not make sense for distribution users, because updates are controlled via the package manager. I am thinking of opening an upstream bug about aiding an option to disable update checking.
Comment 3 Daniel Pielmeier gentoo-dev 2014-03-07 16:27:27 UTC
In version 3.14.3 I have added a patch which removes the update and uninstall python scripts as well as the autoconfiguration and plug-in related stuff from the udev rules. This should prevent hplip from upgrading.
